I am seriously thinking to switching to FIOS TV. I currently have FIOS Internet and phone. I have been deal offers to go to the triple play and I may just pull the trigger on it. They look to have a very good channel offerings and the receivers seem good also. I currently have DirecTV and am happy with them. One issue I am having is that trees are starting to interfere with the signal. The dish is on my fence and I could get them to move it to the roof to solve the tree issue but I am afraid snow/Ice would become an issue this winter and no way to remove it.
I was just wanting some input on the pros and cons of FIOS TV? Is it reliable most of the time? Service good or bad if I have problems? The offer I have now is for a whole home DVR with no charge for a year. How much recording copacity does that have for SD and HD? Also would get a set top box. I am assuming I can access the DVR with set top box? When Verizon comes to install the TV service I am assuming they can use the cables currently used for DTV? I saw a video they had about this and it seems they can.
I would also be getting the Ultimate package with these receivers.This would save me about $50 a month from my DTV bill now plus more channels than I am getting currently. I believe it's a very good deal.
Any input would be very welcome. Thank you.
